Does using Docker impact performance? Is there an extra 'hop' when using a Docker image?
1 month ago
Hi,
I am relatively new to this so this might be a stupid question but it seems Docker and Kubernetes go hand in hand so do you need Kubernetes to use Docker or is just something that makes things easier?

Hi Ken,
I can see you book has a section on co-routines at the end, is this an in depth look? What sort of problems/issues are covered?

Go
Hi,
I can see this is a tutorial for beginners, just wondering how Go ranks for ease of learning and the level of adoption of the language? I haven't seen that many positions advertised using Go but that's maybe because of the industry I'm in (Banking and Finance).

Thanks

Go
I have only ever upgraded one of my 5 certs (the Java Programmer one from 5 to Java 8) and I wouldn't do it just for the paper but I find the learning process to be a good structured way of learning something new. My question could probably be better phrased as "is there enough new stuff from Spring 3 to Spring 5 to spend my time reading this book?".

I'm undecided if employers care too much, I certainly have never favoured someone with certs over someone without for a job.

Hi,
I passed the Core Spring 3 exam back in the mists of time (2011 I think) so was wondering if much has changed since then in core Spring and if it's worth updating my certification?

Hi,
I can see you cover a few different technologies, how deeply do you cover them? Are there examples of working solutions to follow?
Thanks

I haven't looked at the module system yet but is it just a way of packaging just the core libraries APIs that you need? A bit like Maven for external dependencies?

Do you need to use it from Java 9 or can you continue to work the same way as before?

What great choices for Desktop GUIs are you thinking of?



Maybe not desktop GUIs, but in 20 years of development I think when the question "what shall we use for the GUI?" has been asked, I don't recall anyone ever saying Swing! Wasn't JavaFX supposed to replace it (even though that seems to have sunk without trace)?

Hi,
Just wondering if Swing is still used to any great degree? There seems to be so many other great choices for GUIs that I was under the impression that Swing was pretty much dead?

Hi,
I can see from the contents that you cover coroutines in appendix 1, is this just a quick overview? How do they differ from concurrency in Java, is it a totally different model?
Thanks

Hi,
So Kotlin was developed by the creators of IntelliJ so that has full support but is there a decent Eclipse plug in too? Is it fully supported by the rest of the Java ecosystem - Spring, Hibernate, Maven, JUnit, etc?
